Like many Australians, you may be thinking about changing careers and gaining a new qualification during 2013. A new qualification not only provides you with a great set of skills, but increases employment opportunities in a tough job market. Where should you direct your efforts? There are several industries that are shaping up to have some of the best jobs of 2013. Check out some of these possible career paths:
Australia has one of the best education systems in the world. People travel from all corners of the globe to complete school, vocational training and university education at our institutions. Online education is set to be one of the major growth sectors as students and teachers get out of the classroom and enjoy the resources and flexible scheduling online learning can offer. The Australian education system should only get better, with ongoing reforms to sectors such as vocational training to improve the quality of training and convenience for students.
Education support courses, like the Certificate III in Education Support, will qualify you to work within the public sector and independent schools. As an education support student, you will learn the skills to support children with their learning plans and will assist in improving numeracy and literacy skills.
Training and Assessment Courses
The second area of education experiencing growth is the adult education industry. Currently, the industry standard for trainers is the Certificate IV in Training and Assessment TAE40110 Course qualification. As a TAE40110 student, you will learn to design and deliver training programs as well as assess learners.
